Based in Ambattur of Chennai, SS Graphics has been in the business of wedding card printing and designing since 2004. In 2006, the company expanded its portfolio with the installation of office printers and started printing in-house for smaller quantities while bulk jobs were being outsourced. 

The company has an in-house cutting machine, lamination machine, scoring, and creasing machine to provide services to their clients, but the inquisitiveness to provide a wide variety of services motivated SS Graphics to expand its portfolio with Ricoh.

Nagaraj, proprietor, SS Graphics, said, “With the addition of Ricoh Pro C5300S, we are expanding our business into commercial printing. Earlier, we used to outsource the bulk print jobs. Now, with the Ricoh we can produce the jobs in-house.”

He added that the company decided on the Ricoh kit because of its superior print quality and the sharpness of the images and fonts. “The quality of the Ricoh press was a perfect fit for our requirement,” he said.

According to Nagaraj, competition is the challenge today. “The solution is to provide quality service with on-time delivery. The quantity of prints has gone down drastically, and we are not able to go for offset printing. Customers expect quality in digital printing. So we decided to go for the Ricoh press,” he said.

He added, “Monotech Systems has been supportive right from the beginning by providing the demo for the machine and educating us about the machine's ability and performance.”

The Ricoh Pro C5300s, built as the right-sized solution, combining a fusion of vibrant colours, exceptional media handling, powerful performance, and a range of finishing options, along with professional print speeds and advanced technologies, deliver a total package at an affordable price.
